Practical Information in MoroccoEdit This
The local currency is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD)
From the 7th/March/09 Morocco telephone number code changed with no parallel running of the old codes.
You will need to use the new codes when dialling within Morocco, and when dialling Morocco from another country.
Just in case the switchover doesn't work or is delayed for any reason, I would take your old numbers as well - if you can't get through, it may be worth trying both the old and new number.
I have this information on good authority.
- For Moroccan Mobile numbers, the digit “6” will be added to the old Mobile number:
Old Moroccan mobile more..
At the end of March 2006 the prefix numbers of Moroccan towns have changed.
You can look up the new numbers on this site (in French):

Money: You cannot get dirhams outside Morocco. There are exchange booths at the airport . These are both closed late at night. There are ATM machines at the airport , and several in the cities ,so please ask your driver to stop at one if you need dirhams cash to pay him (they are always a him!). If you can't get cash don't worry the hotel /Riad will pay and add it to your bill. The most you can take out in ATM machines is either 4000 dirhams (most) or 6000 dirhams (WAFA bank).

One of the true Moroccan specialties is still a stay in (or just a visit of) a true authentic riad. If anything in Morocco is patrimony of humanity, it is this type of house. Truly a house to fall in love with. From palaces of the upperclass to todays guesthouse.
